Unescorted AOA Access Information

Having unescorted Aircraft Operations Area (AOA) Access is a serious responsibility.

Having unescorted Aircraft Operations Area (AOA) Access is a serious responsibility. Aircraft are designed for their flight characteristics and not their ground handling performance. Many aircraft do not have good visibility while on the ground and as a person with Unescorted AOA Access, it is your responsibility to stay clear of aircraft and maintain a safety-first approach to everything you do.

 If your use of the airport requires Unescorted AOA Access, either Movement or Non-Movement, you are required to complete the following prior to requesting access:

Pass the Self-assessment Evaluation FAA Ground Vehicle Operations Manual (PDF)
Understand the Airport Configuration St. Louis Downtown Airport AOA Manual
Understand how Important a “Safety First” Attitude Is Sample Ground Vehicle Operations Training Manual
Take the AOA Access Driving Exam (Movement)  Movement Driving Exam
Take the AOA Access Driving Exam (Non-Movement)  Non-Movement Driving Exam

You are NOT authorized to drive (or walk) on the airfield until both the Request Form and provided the required information is completed and you have passed the Unescorted AOA Access Test.  If you have any questions about the content of these documents or the process to be approved for unescorted access to the AOA, please Contact Colin Rolerkite for more information.

 

Please Note: You are required to register yearly, pass the applicable tests yearly, and conduct yourself professionally daily. Any person(s) found violating any provision of the associated documents of this request may have his or her unescorted AOA access revoked.
